Despite the fact that Zod technically wins the combat in the primary universe the movie takes position in, he is additionally an overly, very small presence within the movie as a personality. He will get a couple of strains, grimaces, and punches in, however total, he is simply there to coast on his former DCEU glories and represent the insurmountable odds, similar to Shannon mentioned.
With Marcel Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy” at the means, this leaves the DCU in a gorgeous awkward spot when it comes to its Superman villain sport. Zod is well one of the most largest threats ol’ Large Blue Boy Scout has ever confronted, and moderately simply one of the most biggest Superman villains in the market. Actually, within the DCEU continuity, he is technically now not one however two of the best Superman villains in the market, having confronted the Guy of Metal each as himself and because the reanimated abomination, Doomsday.
With Zod successfully out of the equation — as a result of let’s accept it, he is not gonna go back within the subsequent decade or so after being the technical Large Dangerous of “The Flash” — this implies there may be just one well-known Superman antagonist Gunn’s reimagined DC movie universe can latch on to: Lex Luthor. This is not going to be specifically simple, thoughts you. Despite the fact that Luthor has been a presence in just about each and every Superman-adjacent display or movie sequence through the years, his newest big-screen adventures have not been all that a success, as lovers have completely slammed Jesse Eisenberg’s DCEU Luthor.
Granted, Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy” may most probably break out with every other villain like Brainiac and even Mr. Mxyzptlk, however someday, Superman’s nemesis Luthor may have to are available play … and because “The Flash” has taken Zod out of the equation for the foreseeable long term, the DCU may have its palms complete if it desires to make certain that its Luthor can solution the decision.
